Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 21, 1915.
Application filed January 10, 1913. Serial No. 741,362.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, Nns'ron HEADLAND, a subject of F inland and the Czar ofRussia, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Machines for'Pasting, Trimming, and Cutting Wall Paper, of which the following is a description.
My invention belongs to that general class of devices intended to facilitate the hanging of wall paper or the like, and relates particularly to a device for evenly applying and distributing the desired amount of paste to the wall paper, for trimming one or both edges of the paper, cutting the same lengthwise into strips, if desired, and for indicating. the length of paper to be out of, and cutting the same at the desired point.
The invention-has among its objects the production of a device of the kind described that is simple, compact, durable, eflicient, and satisfactory, that may be used wherever found applicable. With the device, injury to the paper, either by wrinkling or creasing, or by smearing paste upon the front of the paper, is prevented, and the paper is accurately trimmed and cut for the purpose intended.
To this end my invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement and combination of parts herein shown and described, and more particularlypointed out in the claims.
In the drawings, wherein like reference characters indicate like or corresponding parts, Figure 1 is a top plan view of my improved device, the paper being removed. Fig; 2 is a sectional view taken substantially on line 2, 2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken substantially on line 3, 3 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken substantially on line i, 4 of Fig, 3. Fig. 5 is an end elevation with a portion of the device looking substantially on the line 5, 5 of Fig. 1. Fig. 6 is a cross sectional view taken substantially on line 6, 6 of Fig. i. Fig. 7 is a sectional view taken substantially on line 7, 7 of Fig. 6, and Fig. 8 is a cross sectional view taken substantially on line 8, 8 of Fig. 1
Referring to the drawings, in which the preferred form of my device is shown, a frame is provided having end pieces 1, 1, and a bottom piece 2, which may be provided with the legs 3, if desired. Qrdina rily, however, the legs-3 are not required, as the machine may be placed upon the floor, or upona table, orother support.
In the drawing, 5 represents a roll of wall paper, a portion 6 of which isrun off the roll 5, the end portion 6 being discharged from the machine, trimmed, and pasted, ready for hanging,and if desired, folded or piled, as at 6 The; trimmings 6 are discharged where they-maybe gathered up and removed.
rirranged between the end 1 of the frame is a suitable paste tank or receptacle 7 The paste receptacle is detachable from the frame, and is preferablyarrangedso that it maybe transversely-moved into position, and at the same time elevated to the paste roll or applier, as hereafter described. The paste receptacle, or its support, may also be adjustable, so that the receptacle may be supported at the desired height relative the paste roll. The receptacle shown is provided with a plurality of pins 8 at each end, each of which has a roller 9 arranged thereon. Brackets 10 are provided, one for each roller 9, which are extended as at 11 to substantially form tracks, and are secured to brackets 12, which are secured to the sides of the frame by thumb screws or bolts 13. The bolts 13 pass through slots 14 in the sides of the frame and are provided at the outer ends with the winged nuts 15, or the equivalents, so that the supports may be secured at the desired points. As is obvious, when the paste receptacle is moved in be tween the ends 1, 1 of the frame, and supported ontracks 11, the transverse -movement of the same causes it to be elevated up to the brackets 10, which are substantially formed with notches or pockets to prevent the receptacle from sliding back.
Rotatably mounted above the paste receptacle on a shaft 17 is arranged a paste roll, or paste applier 18, which is provided with a suitable paste carrying face or surface 19- of felt, or any equivalent material for the purpose. Itwill be noted that the paste roll projects into the'paste receptacle, so that as the roll is rotated in the direction indicated by the arrow in'Fig. 2, it
becomes coated with paste and applies a coating of paste to the plain or blank side of the paper-6.
The rollof wall paper 5 is arranged upon a core 25, mounted upon a shaft 23 (see Fig. 4) which shaft is detachably mounted so that it substantially acts as a brake and prevents the paper from being drawn off too rapidly, or the roll spinning. Thev core inay be sliced or sectioned, as are some of the rolls hereafter described, or an assortment of cores of different lengths provided for use with paper of difi'erent widths.
I Referring particularly to Figs. 4, 6, 7 and 8, the end of shaft 23 is provided with an adjustable tubular end 29, into which the end of shaft 23 extends, which part 29 ex tends through the bearing block 24, and is provided with a hand wheel 30 for ad ustment. The end29 is preferably squared as at 29, as shown in Fig. 8, andupon the;
end is mounted a c0llar 31 and the flange 28 having an extended part 28. Between the two is positioned a spring 82. As is obvious, when the hand Wheel 30 is turned, the flange 28 may be pushed-toward the flange 27. This permits an adjustment for different widths of wallpaper, and also permits the variation in the pressure upon the end of the roll, since the tension of the spring 32 may be made as desired.
vAs most clearly shown in Figs. 6. and 7, the block 24 is provided with flanges 33 and 34 and a set screw 35, provided for locking the part 29, and preventing its rotation. Any equivalent construction for the purpose may be employed. Arranged proximate the paper carrier is what may be termed a feeding or alining roll 41, which is mounted upon a shaft 40. This roll is preferably provided with a flange 42 at each end, and is provided with a plurality of removable sections 40at one end, so that the same may be made applicable for any width of wall paper. This will bemore fully explained in the operation of't'he machine. These sections may be termed slices so that the roll may be said to be a sliced roll. W here the paper roll is even or square at the ends,one alining roll is all that is usually required. However, where the roll of paper is not true, there are times when one alining roll will not be suificient to aline the paper and keep it running straight or true. I have therefore provided rolls 43 and 46 in addition to theroll 41. The
V roll 43 is mounted upon a shaft 45, and is It isprovided preferably not rotatable. witha flange 44 at each end, andalso sliced in a manner similar to the roll 41.
The 101146 is rotatably mounted upon a shaft 48rand provided with a flange 47 at each end, and the roll is also. preferably sliced similar to the other rolls just described. .In Fig. 2 the paper is shown extended over all of the alining rolls, and in Fig. 3 only over roll 41.
This is also more fully explained in the description of the operation of the Supported by a shaft 50 is what maybe termed a cutter or cutting roll 51, which is preferably provided with a face or surface 52 of zinc, or other suitable mate'rialfor the purpose. Zinc, however,is'found very, satisfactory, and preferred *forthe purpose,
inasmuch as it does not dull the cutters as quickly as would a face of steel ,or similarly.
hard material, and does not rust. .Mounted.
proximate the paste roll 18. and cutter roll 51, iswhat I'have termed a regulator roll 54, provided with a suitable face. 'The regulator roll 54 is preferably adjustably mounted so that the position of thesame relative the cutter may be as desired. Any, adjust:
able mounting for the same may be pro videdsthat is satisfactory for the purpose.
As shown, each endof the shaft 53 is mount- 1 7 ed, or secured. in an-adjustable bearing block 55 (see Fig. 5) which is maintained in place by a bolt or screw 56 in engagementwith a plate 57 secured to the frame. I The paste.
regulator roll 54 maybemade of slices, if
desired, so that a portion of it may be re moved when using the machine for very narrow strips. If it were all one long piece, it would not be so convenient to paste onehalf strips without smearing the remain-- ing part of the regulator roll, and;co-nsequently, perhaps, the right or front side of the wall paper. If desired, a scale 55, and
a pointer 55 may be provided on each side,"
asshown in Fig. 5, so that theshaft 53 mav be alined with the shaft 50011 the cutter roll. i
Arranged proximate the cutter roll are one or more cutters 69, the same being preferably ad ustably mounted upon a rod or shaft 67 so that they may be placed at thedesired point on the cutter roll, or may be turned back out of operative position,
asmost clearly shown in Fig. 3. To main-' tain the cutters 69, each of which is secured to an arm 68in the desired'position relativethe' cutter roll, or in cutting pos tion, I provide each arm with a spring 68, and arrange abar 70 across the machine arrangedto bear down'upon all of the 'springs'on armsp68 that are in cutting position.
frame, as clearly shown in Fig. 5, by means of bolts 71' and plates 72. The pressure upon the springs, and consequently'the pressure of the cuttersupon the cutting roll, may be varied by turning the bolts 71 in the desired direction. Tn order thatthe pressure on all ofthe cutters may befthe same, a scale 7 0 and pointer 70 may be provided at each. end of'the frame, as illustratediin Fig. I also preferably provide a scale The'bar 70 is I ad ustably 'mounted at each side of the Ice upon the top face of the part 70, as most clearly shown in Fig. 1. It will be noted that the plates 72 may beturned out of position so as to release the bar 70 when it is desired to turn back many of the cutters, or
to change the position of the same upon the rod 67. The cutters are intended to trim the paper at each end, or cut it length-wise at any desired point between the sides. To cut the paper the desired length, a cutter 7 5 is provided, the same being movable length-wise the cutter roll. As shown, the cutter 75 is carried by an arm 74: secured to a shaft or rod 73. Thehandle 76, for convenience in raising the cutter or operating it, may be provided if desired. It will be particularly noted that the design of the paper may always be conveniently seen by the paper hanger, thereby making it easy to determine where it should be trimmed or cut elf.
In the drawings I show a roll 62 mounted above the cutter roll, the same being preferably made in a plurality of substantially short sections, or slices, throughout its length, so that the cutters may enterbetween the sections. The sections are also slidably mounted upon the shaft 61, which is rotatably mounted in the frame. As most clearly shown in Fig. 2, the shaft 61 is square where it passes through the sections 62, so that as the shaft is rotated, the sections are also rotated.
The shaft 53 upon which the roll 54: is secured is provided with a gear 58, which meshes with the gear 22 on the paste roll shaft 17, to which the operating handle or crank 21 is secured. At the opposite end of the shaft 53 is a gear 59 arranged to mesh with a gear 60 on the shaft 50 and drive the cutter roll. The gear '60 is arranged to mesh with the gear (33 on the shaft 61 and drive the sliced roll 62; It will be noted that the teeth on the gears 22, 58-, 59 and 60, are substantially deep so as to allow the adjustments of the shaft 53, as previously described. While the sizes of the gears may be made substantially as shown, or as desired, they are preferablyabout the proportions shown, and it may be mentioned that the gear 22 being slightly largerthan the paste roll 18, the paper has a slightly greater speed than the surface 19 of the paste roll,
so that there is substantially a wiping-aetion, which thoroughly distributes the paste upon the paper.
To remove any excess paste on the paste roll, a wiper 81 is secured upon a shaft 80 (see Figs. 2 and 3), and arranged to be controlled from outside of the machine. This wiper is also preferably arranged so that any paste removed by the wiper will drop into the paste receptacle. I also preferably provide a wiper, or excess paste remover, 7 8, which may be mounted upon a shaft 77.
The purpose of this wiper is to remove excess paste that may accumulate on the cutter roll. The Wipers or excess paste removers are preferably arranged so that they may be operated or controlled from the out side of the machine. A chute 7 9 extending across the machine is also provided for directing the paste removed by the wiper 78 into the paste receptacle. To indicate or measure the paper passing through the machine, a scale 8% may be provided upon the end of the frame (see Fig. 1) having suitable characters thereon, and a pointer 83 upon the shaft 17. In the device shown, when the pointer has traveled once around the dial, eighteen inches of paper has passed through the machine. The finger or pointer 83 is preferably made adjustable so that it may be set-at the desired point. It is, of course, obvious that any equivalent measuring device may be employed, and if desired, a counting device used in addition. The counting device affords a convenient way of keeping account of the paper positioned through the machine, and also enables a check to be made upon the amount of paper in the roll of wall paper. The application of a counting device is so obvious to those skilled in the art that I have not considered it necessary to illustrate one.
To file or fold the paper as indicated at 6 in Figs. 2 and 3, I provide an adjustable arm 87 at each side of the machine, between which is arranged a roll 88. The arms 87 are carried by brackets 89 on the frame secured in the desired position by screws 90. The operation of the same is obvious, the weight of the paper causing it to be folded back and forth. I also show an adjustable frame consisting of the uprights 91 and 92, having cross-bars 9-1, over which the paper (indicated at this point by numeral 98) may be manually pulled or drawn when it is not desired to use the piling roll 88 to fold the paper discharged from the machine. By using the distributing frame just described, the paper hanger can take the paper from the machine at a point above his head, which, in some cases, may be desirable.
The operation of the machine may be briefly described as follows, it being assumed that the paper roll 5 is arranged as shown, and that the same is substantially true at the ends, so that it will run off true relative the roll. over the roll 41, over the paste roll, under the regulator roll, and between that and the cutter roll, and over the cutter roll between that and the sliced roll, the paste receptacle having been previously slid into position and elevated to its supporting brackets. The several cutters G9 are positioned at the desired trimming or cutting points, those not desired being turned back out of operative position. It may be assumed that the out- In this case it is extended is extended'o'ver the auxiliary alining rolls l andi l6, is extended substantially as shown in Fig. 2, the additional rolls assisting the roll rl in alining the paper, so that it. will run true. If it is desired to runa narrower paper through the machine than that for which the fianges on the end of the several rolls are set, the flanges may be moved over between the slices, bringing them-to the desired point, so as to contact with the two edges of the paper. The various slices or sections shown may be removed from the shafts by removing the shafts fromj the frame, it being understood, however, that,
if desired, the sections may be made detachable from the shafts, or so that they can be readily detached or shifted without removing the shafts, if so desired. vI have not considered it necessary to illustrate this. The pressure of the regulator roll 54: and the cutters 69 upon the cutter roll may be varied as found desirable. In orderto raise the trimmed edges of the paper from the cutter roll, I. employ fingers 100, or their equivalents. These fingers may be mounted upon the frame or at any desired point. As illustrated in the drawings, they are adjustably mounted upon the partition or waste paste carrier 79. They consist of the part 100 having an extended part 101 for clamping the finger to the partition mentioned. As is obvious, they may be positioned where desired, depending upon the position of the cutters. If it is'not desired to have the paper run faster than the paste roll, as in the case of a paper that would tear or fracture easily when wet, an additional cover may be placed on the pasteroll so as to increase its circumference, so that thecircumference, or face, travels at the same rate of' speed as thepaper. I i
It will be particularly noted that the machine will paste the paper smoothly, and that the parts can be regulated to any desired width or thickness of paper, or paste on'the paper, and for that reason it is satisfactory for anythickness of paper, or wall papers having different surfaces. It'will be particularly noted that there is no irregular pulling of the paper by hand, that is by the operator grasping the paper, but with the paperbeing positively driven by the gears, the paper is piled evenly and regularly. It
is adapted to trim the edges of the paper,
as Well as split or cut the paper lengthwise at any desired point between the edges, and the trimming and cutting will be absolutely true and straight, making, itv easy for the paper hanger to hang'the paper with the seams together. The machine is also adapted to paste and trim the edge of cut-out borders, which. work is very difficult when done by hand.
Vfhile Thave particularly mentioned wall paper, it is obvious that the .machine is adapted for. pasting and trimming and cut ting papers of all kinds and sizes, and pasting and cutting .walcrusta, burlaps, and similar wall coverings. It may also be mentioned that in this case it is not absolutely necessary that the wall covering be in the form of a roll 5, as it may pass over. the rolls, and thence to the paste roll, with satisfactory results In all cases the workisefficiently done, both as to thejamountof pasteand its application or cutting and trimming, so that the paper may be taken from themachine, cut to the correct length and width,
and ready for hanging. 7
Having thus described my invention, it is obvious that various immaterial modifications may be made in the same without departing from the spirit of." my invention, hence I do not wish to be understood as lineiting myself to the exact form,construction,.
arrangement or combination of parts herein shown and described, or uses mentioned.
